Kids of all ages can climb, discover, and explore their favorite things on wheels at Touch A Truck!
Discovery Junction Children's Museum invites you to join us on Sunday, September 30th for our 5th Annual Touch A Truck. Touch a Truck provides a unique opportunity for children (of all ages) to explore their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, and meet the people who help to protect, build, and serve our community.
All proceeds will support DJCM in its goal of opening a children's museum in Prince William County. DJCM will be home to hands-on interactive exhibits designed to spark creative and critical thinking. Exhibits will focus on aspects of current and historical local significance, imaginative play, the arts, and sciences.
We are thankful to our sponsors who have shown such enthusiasm and care for our community!

Where will Touch A Truck be located?

What vehicles can I look forward to touching?
We asked our community agencies and business for their support by providing a vehicle
for children to explore for a day. And boy did they deliver! With over 60 vehicles, including
first responders, construction, and community service, we're confident that we'll have one
of your child's favorites. Do you have a vehicle that you would like to share with our
community? We'd LOVE to have you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more
What is the horn light hour?
Please note that for our friends with special needs and sensory sensitivities, we will once
again be striving for a 'horn light' hour between 11am and 12pm. Because we've learned
that complete silence is something we just can't guarantee, we will have child sized ear plugs available at the entrance and at the tent in the Children's Activities Area.
What if it rains?
Touch A Truck will take place rain or shine! We are hoping for a beautiful day but in the
event of rain, get out those umbrellas and rain boots. In the case of severe weather that
would require cancellation, an announcement will be posted on this page and on the
Discovery Junction Facebook page. In the event of a cancellation refunds will be provided to all who have prepaid.
What type of food will be available?
We are thrilled to offer a variety of food options for our guests. There are many grassy areas for your family to sit and enjoy your meal as well as some tables under covered awnings.
